Australia - Nuclear energy's Saudi Arabia (Thanks Greenies!)
Greenies push Kyoto Protocol (all good), which encourages carbon trading (excellent result) which encourages cheap alternative non carbon power (Hydro & Nuclear). Since greenies are also particularly against dams in areas which are good for hydro (hmm, say Franklin etc.) this really encourages nuclear power. And which country has the highest proven reserves of Uranium in the whole world - YESSS... Australia is the winner!!! Yes I know there's this silly 1 km high tower going up somewhere with a huge greenhouse underneath, but that's just a show-pony electricity generator. Uranium is the new yellow gold of this world, and we've got it!
